The Polaroid SX-70 Alpha One Model 2
Overall condition: 8/10 Refurbished Mint condition, some very minor marks on body from general use. Comes with 6 months warranty.
The Single Lens Reflex camera that is collapsible and originally came in chrome with tan leather , which is what this article about, the latter model.
The reason why we admire this camera so much is because of the amount of ideas, thoughts, and work that had been invested into this camera, not to mention the cost of bringing this product into reality too.
First off, the camera is immaculately designed, it’s not only a Polaroid camera but its also an SLR camera that is collapsible (A SLR camera that iscollapsible!!) that comes in a timely sexy chrome with tan leather.
Second, being an SLR camera means that it allows you have full control over the image in terms of the focus, and it comes with an electric eye (photo meter) and allows full auto exposure photos at an f/8 aperture.
Third off, the image quality from this camera is just amazing, you get a nice depth of field and the camera allows you to focus from 1 foot (quite close up) right to infinity. With it’s glass lens, once you get it right, it's incredibly sharp.
Finally it costed Polaroid $600 million in R&D, back in the 70's.It cost the company another $600 million to create the integrated film system.
This was made possible because of the relentless pursuit by Dr. Edwin Land - the perfectionist (often compared to the Steve Jobs of our time).
